I suffered a near debilitating obsession level with YouTube trending news from like October last year till February of this year.

I couldn't stop following the US Election drama. I was worried and concerned. I think a lot of non-US people were.
And then it was finally over. The drama that is. I don't care what the Reps do with Trump. I don't care if Biden is any of what they say of him. Good or bad.

That and all things covid. Regardless of where you stand on any of it, it's too much, it's too everpresent. And it seems credibility is gone. Who do you trust now?
Covid is still the top story. But I've stopped worrying about it. Not saying it isn't still a potential danger. But, I've lost the need to fear it daily. I'm worn out. I've had zero social life for a year.

I'm trying to walk away from the obsession with the news.
It hasn't been healthy.

Trump isn't the only person I'm able to be disgusted with. Canada and the UK have no shortage.
And I'm just trying to stop caring. I've been forced to hide here in my apartment. I don't care what's happening outside of town.

I'll watch the weather-related news. That's it.

I am soooo glad 2020 is gone. I refuse to let 2021 be a re-run.

Please don't spell it Leslie. That's both a dead name and not mine.

Friends call me Bunny

Hi Bunny,

I don't watch the news either much these days, it is so depressing. I do hope 2021 does prove to be a good year for everyone and optomistic me believes it will be.

OMG Bunny, I'm sorry....... It's a habitual spelling from an old friend, and my muscle memory just took over.

It's good to see you again.

I watched hours of network news from patient zero to the end of may. Got very depressing. I hand pick 2.or 3 things while i have breakfast that catch.my eye and NO videos theyre a waste of time. I have zero social life and no job. I only go outdoors when i.need.to buy groceries. Ergo what i do in my umlimited spare time must be chosen not dictated. Network news is designed to be addictive, re runs the same 3.or 4 stories all day and caters to an audience that demands excitement and controversy, which usually translates to violence and social outrage. There have been studies it can warp one's reality.
